    Ohio's highest court upholds limits on lawsuits - By JIM PROVANCE, The Toledo Blade, Ohio
    "It's unfair to place the burden on the original manufacturer to defend a product liability claim for a product that's been out in the market so long," he said.

    But Mr. Groch's attorneys, Kevin J. Boisoneault and Ted Bowman, argued that the law essentially closes the courthouse door to someone injured by a product even before the injury occurs.

    "You could literally have a person go to work at a factory on the third shift starting at 11 p.m., working on a machine manufactured 10 years ago that day," said Mr. Boisoneault. "At the strike of midnight, that person could be injured on the machine and not have a cause of action against the manufacturer."
